Double nickel

One more lap around the sun.  That's the greeting my older brother sent me on Wednesday.  

I am not one to toot my own horn.  OK, maybe writing a blog about myself is sorta tooting my horn (or a tad narcissistic), but I really don't like to make a big deal about birthdays, especially mine.  I've had my fair share.  I done the party thing and lost a few brain cells (not the important ones) but I'm now sort of past that point.  I'd rather celebrate with a quiet dinner.  That's pretty much how my day went.  Go to work, dodge people who keep asking my age, get birthday wishes from the family, leave early, take the dogs out for a long walk/run, dinner with the wife, crash early.  I guess I have become an old fart.  

I've lapped the sun more than a few times.  I always find it interesting to note who else was born on the same day.  I share my birthday with a few notable characters:  Mathew Broderick, Gary Oldman , Timothy Dalton, Johann Sebastian Bach, and, of course, Lucy Pie.

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.  Mark Twain

Happy Birthday!! So glad you tooted! 55 laps around the sun? Pretty impressive!
You celebrated your birthday much like I would celebrate mine. I suppose that's why we party hardy while we're younger... it's too hard to recover these days.
Sounds like it was enjoyable, and how lucky you share your birthday with Lucy Pie. :)

Happy Birthday! You're a palindrome age, if numbers could be palindromes. I think the brain cells we kill during the early years are suicidal ones that get us to celebrate that way. Better off without them! And yes, you're in good company with Lucy Pie!

Happy (belated) Birthday! I like the way you celebrate. The older I get, the more the slower pace suits me too. Glad you had a day you were able to enjoy with your wife and the furry kids.

Sorry I'm late to the party. I've been down for the count with the flu for the past several days. Can't seem to shake this one.
